The ABC’s of New York City Sample Sales
As the peak season approaches each year, we try to enlighten our readers with the What, Why and How of Sample Sales.
Once upon a time, designers sold their handful of sample size items at the end of the year. These are the individual pieces shown to store buyers. Some make it to full production, some do not. Typically, these are size 2, 4 or 6. That was then, this is now
Now, sample sales are BIG business and one can expect big inventory. All seasonal overstock in ALL sizes as well as those coveted one-off samples, are offered at Massive discount. This is an opportunity to buy often unaffordable clothing and accessories at very affordable prices. Or to chase down the designer names you love. or to simply shop for cool stuff. Essential to know: Must get to Sample Sale on its First day open!
In New York City, the apex of the 2017 sample sale season is November 13 to December 15.
Shop Gotham knows what is what and what is where. Come join us for private access to designer showrooms to shop at wholesale followed by a roster of all the best sample sales in town. Forget the Department Stores. This is oh so much chicer.

Pas de Calais
You may live in a lovely city chock full of parks and wonder why bother visiting This park on your precious vacation to New York.
Yes, this expansive 2.5 mile long famous place has a Zoo, Broadway Baseball leagues, lovely restaurants, a carousel and skating rink, running paths galore and a million nooks and crannies to read a book, meditate or take a nap. All good reasons, but that is not the most important one.
We, who have been living in and observing New York and its inhabitants for 3 decades know that if you want to see real New Yorkers, this is the place to go. Our Oasis.
On a Sunday, especially in Spring and Fall, the park is doused with thousands of .. wait for it.. New Yorkers RELAXING! Away from our lightless apartments or stress filled office cubicles, the inhabitants of this city are actually kind and gentle people, who will caress and guide visitors with generosity of spirit as unknown on a Tuesday in Midtown.
Do not come to NYC and miss Central Park. It is worth the visit.

Plan your New York City trip in advance
Planning ahead when visiting NYC is key. We’re not just talking about a few weeks in advance, but sometimes months or even a year! There are so many amazing events and organizations to see while you are here that it’s best to do your research in advance. Why you ask? So you don’t miss out on amazing events such as the Women in the World Summit, that we attended earlier this week.
Organized by journalist Tina Brown and in its seventh year, this three-day summit introduced several dozen inspiration women who are leaders or doing the kind of important work we should all know about. Shop Gotham was present at this extraordinary event at Lincoln Center and found it to be a must do in NYC.
Speakers included: Ayaan Ali Hirsi, a leader in the voice against the hardship of Islamic Laws on women, Cecile Richards, CEO of Planned Parenthood, Mindy Kaling, the actor and comedian, Meryl Streep, Katie Couric, Thomas Friedman, Jo Ann Jenkins, CEO of AARP, Christine Lagarde, Managing Director, the International Monetary Fund and many others.
If you are planning to come to NYC in 2017, we encourage you to really plan ahead to attend this summit and be prepared to be enlightened and inspired.
